Bunbury Music Festival kicks off this weekend

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

The inaugural Bunbury music festival kicks off in Cincinnati this weekend.

The festival features 100 live performances on six stages throughout Sawyer Point and Yeatman's Cove on July 13-15.

Headliners are Jane's Addiction on Friday, Weezer on Saturday and Death Cab for Cutie on Sunday.

The event was founded by veteran music and event promoter Bill Donabedian. The name comes from an Oscar Wilde play, The Importance of Being Ernest  and means 'to have a made up excuse to get out of doing something boring.'

One day tickets are $46 and three day tickets are $93.

32 live performances kicked off at noon on Sunday. Passion Pit canceled their performance set for 7:30 p.m. due to band illness. Headliner Death Cab for Cutie will take the stage at 8:30 p.m.
